Logs Location

To get Gorilla Player log files please look for the following folder on your computer:

Users\<YOUR_USER>\.gorilla\logs

Changing Log Level

By default Gorilla would log only errors or relevant information about what is going on.

In order to better diagnose a problem it is useful to change the log level to a more verbose log mode, like debug, so more information is available in the logs. To change the log level you will need to edit the config.json file located here:

Users\<YOUR_USER>\.gorilla\config.json 

By default this file has something like:

{"serverName":"Gorilla on <YOUR_COMPUTER_NAME>"}

This serverName is just a friendly name for your Gorilla server. In order to change the log level to debug add the logLevel attribute as follows:

{"serverName":"Gorilla on <YOUR_COMPUTER_NAME>", "logLevel":"debug"}

Each time you changed the logLevel you will need to restart Gorilla Player desktop app, for the change to be taken into account.


Important: Once you finish doing the diagnose, remove the logLevel attribute or set it back to info (the default value) to avoid the overhead of writing all those logs.
